Free online support and self-advocacy programme for young people with SEND available now!
Time to Talk Next Steps, from the National Development Team for Inclusion, is registering new young people aged 16-25 with additional needs onto their free online support and self-advocacy programme now.
Time to Talk Next Steps young people who are experiencing anxiety, isolation and who have limited or no plans for the future. You may be in school or in college or have finished all education and be unsure how to move forward.
If you are allocated support from the programme after filling out a Request for Support form, you will be introduced to one of our trained Supporters. They will meet you for an introduction and find out what will be most useful to help you move forward. This might be linking you with people who have similar issues and interests to you through peer support sessions, linking you with useful activities or contacts in your local area or providing you with individual sessions to build your confidence and explore next steps to suit you.
The project is being delivered in partnership with national disability charity Contact to provide support, information and workshops for parents and carers on transition to adulthood.
